Port Townsend EcoVillage is a community of people dedicated to living in harmony with each other and with the earth, exploring together ways to live more sustainably and joyfully.
We are a small-town urban ecovillage on 7.5 acres in Port Townsend, WA USA. As of March 2018, we are 32 adults and 12 children (ages 3-13) and we will grow to about 50 total residents once the final lot and home currently for sale are occupied. We live in dwellings varying from “tiny houses,” small homes and duplexes to rooms in a cooperative house, built using a variety of earth-friendly, energey efficient designs and materials.
Our abundant edible landscape, including annual & perennial vegetables, berries and fruits, and chickens, thrive under the care of everyone in the village and we are exploring acquiring more animals for restorative agriculture system.
As a Homeowners Association, we have 12 lots with each lot owner also owning 1/12th of the commons. We use an intentional and inclusive system of self-governance, meet as a community once or twice monthly, and participate in monthly work parties. Our “teams” system ensures that we get the every day work of the village done, care for the health of the village and one another, and support us continuing to complete our building process. We plan to break ground on our common house in summer of 2018.
We are actively seeking new members and welcome visitors – see our website for more info.
